Barbara Schermer, 67, of Chicago and Ajijic, died on Tuesday morning at 4:00am CST, at home in Mexico. Barbara had been very courageous over the sixteen years she had faced bouts of cancer. She had many good years in between. Barbara was exemplary for her positive attitude and was much loved, even by those she only met in the four years we have lived in Mexico. She also gave anyone an example for how to live with death looking over your left shoulder, and she died with a dignity that would honor any Eastern saint.
Our love continued to deepen, especially in the last four years, and will remain with me forever.
I will leave the site up for a while to allow her many admirers to read or download her writings.—Bob Craft.
